Request #18-607

We are working on a tenant improvement project at 165 O'Farrell which has an existing basement under the sidewalk along O'Farrell St.  However, a portion of this basement (about 7'-0" W x 10' L) directly in front of the property line is sealed off in concrete. We would like to know what, if anything, is behind that concrete wall and if it is possible to demolish. This is needed in order to accommodate several utility lines which we need to run from the street into our property.

Dear Ms. Chan,

We have finished conducting a diligent search and found no documents responsive to your request. Therefore, we consider your request closed.

We do not have anything that shows what is behind the wall.  The sub-sidewalk basement is technically part of the building so we suggest contacting the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection to see if they have drawings:
